I haven’t read Sea of Rust yet, but when I heard a couple of people (mostly Kayla) hyping this book up, I knew I had to check out Day Zero. I honestly thought I was going to love it, since it had everything that I thought I loved. An apocalyptic story of a robot uprising with a cute tiger robot best friend.
Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into it. I spent SO LONG trying to care about the characters, but I really didn’t. I’m not sure if these characters are prominent in Sea of Rust, if they are then perhaps I should have read that first to get a feel for them and to actually care about what was going to happen to everyone.
I normally ALWAYS try to read an author’s works in publication order, because I feel like authors often lean on previous works even if they claim their newest is a standalone.
I might try out Cargill’s other stuff but to be honest I just didn’t care about this one.
